    Good to know:

    • In 1805, Barbe-Nicole Clicquot (born Ponsardin) took over her husband’s wine business, when widowed at age 27.
    • She transformed a small-size business into an empire. Impressively, she led the company in the industry dominated by men for over 60 years as the Head of the Maison Clicquot (1805-1866).
    • She also created the first ever vintage champagne.
    • In addition, Madame Clicquot invented the first riddling table, that made the process of dégorgement more efficient and guaranteed a crystal-clear wine.
    • Furthermore, she created the first “rosé d’assemblage” (blended pink champagne) by combining some of red wines with champagne.

    Since 1972, the Maison Veuve Clicquot has awarded over 350 women around the world in over 27 countries.

    The winners have the same distinguished qualities as Madame Clicquot herself: entrepreneurial spirit, creativity, courage, determination and audacity. The Maison Veuve Clicquot also assesses the company financial and growth potentials as well as the social and environmental responsibilities of the nominees.
